Blazepod Tips for Getting the Most out of Your Workouts

When it comes to working out, most people are under the impression that the results depend on the type and intensity of the exercises only. While this matters a lot, your pre-workout rituals, including nutrition, hydration, and choice of workout environment, also have an impact on your workout routine’s effectiveness. 

Whether you’re working out to get in shape or fight fat, here are a few considerations that will maximize your results:

Fuel (if necessary)

There’s a hot debate on whether you should eat before working out. Most people opine that exercising on an empty stomach will boost weight loss. Although this makes sense to a certain degree, keep in mind that your body needs enough energy to endure the workout session. You don’t need to force food down if you feel okay, though. But don’t ignore your body if it needs to fuel. 

Pre workout pods 

Downing preworkout pods before hitting the gym is trendy today. If you’re at the fence of joining the bandwagon, the big question is, “What workout supplement should I take?”

There’s conflicting information on whether taking pod pre workout helps. However, one study showed higher energy levels, along with improved muscular endurance and anaerobic threshold.

Note that the best pre workout supplements come down to the ingredients. These are among the best supplements that will support your training; 

  • Creatine
  • Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA)
  • Beta-Alanine 
  • Beta-hydroxy beta-methyl butyrate (HMB)
  • Weight gainers 
  • Protein supplements 


Sweating is vital for heat regulation when exercising. But it’s important to realize that this process involves reducing the amount of fluid in your system. Excessive sweating can lead to dehydration, impairing the body’s ability to cool itself and maintain a constant supply of nutrients to the muscles and other organs. 

When preparing to work out, the American Council on Exercise advises athletes to drink; 

  • 17-20 ounces of water 2-3 hours pre-workout 
  • 8 ounces 20-30 minutes before starting the exercises 
  • 7-10 ounces every 20 minutes during the workout session 
  • 8 ounces after the workout 

Specific Workup Exercises 

Properly warming up is necessary before getting down to business. Warming up helps in revving up your cardiovascular system to increase blood flow to the muscles, enhancing flexibility and lowering the risk of injury. 

Blazepod has plenty of challenging but awesomely fun warm up exercises that will boost your athlete’s morale while improving their reaction and decision-making speed.
